Angela Spaccia resigned from her $10,000 a month contract position as interim city manager in Maywood on Friday, city spokesperson Magdalena Prado said.
Last week, after uproarious outrage at protests held by Bell city residents, Spaccia resigned as the city's assistant manager.
The position in the working-class city of Bell paid her more than a reported $376,000 a year, which is well above the salary of most city managers.
Spaccia's cited reason for her resignation in Maywood was because she felt the growing media concern would detract from the city's needed structural and financial reforms, Prado said.
Spaccia had been working under contract for Maywood since February, and recently oversaw Maywood's decision to disband the city's police department and lay off droves of city employees.
